Who else is in charge of the craft at the school Halloween party tomorrow? I am doing the craft for my son’s 4th grade class and wanted to have them create something that would keep them busy for a while. Plus, I wanted something that wasn’t extremely messy. Because let’s be real. Don’t most parents get upset when their child’s clothing gets covered in paint??? Especially when it’s the Halloween costumes that they will be wearing later that night! Over the last few months I’ve been searching for different craft ideas all over the web. I decided that DIY Halloween votive holders would be perfect after discovering these adorable upcycled Halloween luminary jars from Oh So Savvy Mom. Her jars turned out really dandy. Only problem, in my case, was that I didn’t want to give the kids spray paint. Can you imagine?! The adorable luminary jars are perfect for a craft project at home but in a classroom setting with a bunch of 4 graders… Well, that thought made me shudder. I was also worried that the kids would run out of time to complete the craft and that I’d be sending them home with wet paint. The party is only so long! So I tweaked the idea and made it perfectly suited for the school party. And I’ll be making Oh So Savvy Mom’s craft for myself at home. *wink*
If you are also in need of a last minute Halloween craft then this one is perfect. All of the items can be found at a local store and you won’t need a ton of supplies for this project.
Last Minute DIY Halloween Votive Holders
What you’ll need:
How To Make DIY Halloween Votive Holders
- Put 6-8 drops of pain inside the jar.
- Use paint brush to paint up the sides of the inside of the jar.
- Stick glue dots to the outside of the jar.
- Place plastic spiders on each glue dot.
My favorite part about this craft project (besides it being so fast and easy to make) is that the paint stays contained inside the jar while it dries. So easy to just put the lid back on and no worries kids to get paint everywhere on the way home from school!
Such a fun craft to make. The kids will really enjoy taking the finished project home to include in their family’s Halloween decor. Simply add a battery powered candle for a spooky glow!
